You'll find them in a wide depth range in summer on Fork. Timber in 17-23 ft and 29-33 ft has been productive depths for me in the past. Chum is your friend. Keep moving every 15 minutes until you're happy with the bite.

I fished a baited hole in 30 ft. water Wed-Fri for a total of app. 3 hours of fishing and caught 48. Caught 19 in a little over an hour Thurs. afternoon and got scared off the lake yesterday afternoon due to lightening in the area or would have done even better. They often bite the best in the heat of the afternoon for some reason.

Hi, I went last Thursday. My partner and I tried 30 feet first and caught 1. We moved to 17 feet and caught 33 before we stopped counting. Take out lots of chum and be willing to relocate. Sometimes on fork a two foot difference in depth will make a huge difference. I like my boat in the most windy areas of the lake. The fish bite better and it is slightly more cool. Please do not forget to take some Stubby's cheese bait. I will tell you on some days they just want the Stubby's.
